Just a few years ago, Aaron Sorkin found himself at his New York City apartment with his father the morning the Academy Award nominations were revealed. A film he had written was among the hopefuls, but it was not to be. Sorkin's father helped ease the sting by asking his son this question: How many people in the world do you think woke up this morning even with a reasonable expectation that they might get an Oscar nomination?
Manager-producer Dave Becky, who until last week had represented Louis C.K., has issued a lengthy apology for how he handled allegations of sexual misconduct involving his longtime client. In the statement, released Monday, Becky expresses regret and dismisses whispers that he knew more about his client's questionable behavior.
Anthony Edwards has written an emotional essay in which he alleges that writer producer Gary Goddard molested him and raped his friend in a pattern of abuse that "went on for years." Edwards' piece, published Friday on Medium, is particularly troubling considering his age at the time. The actor, now 55 years old and best known for his Emmy nominated work on E.R., recalls meeting Goddard when he was 12. "He quickly became a dominant force in my life," Edwards writes.
I went to #AFIFEST closing night where @jes_chastain called Aaron Sorkin "industry's greatest wordsmith," he called her "magnificent," Martin Sheen called Sorkin "modern-day bard," and somebody's dog kept barking in theater. Very eventful night, I'd say.
Aaron Sorkin on creating @idriselba character, misconceptions about real-life Molly, his fear of public speaking and how he wishes he could live life by slipping papers under door, food slipped back. @AFIFESThttps://t.co/3PYCx4suQw
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
